Album Review: Sojourn - "A Child Is Born"

Newly added to Worship and Glory Radio are several Christmas songs by Sojourn from their new album "A Child Is Born". Added were the traditional Christmas favorites "Silent Night", "O Come, O Come Emmanuel", "Go Tell It On the Mountain", and "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".

Album Review:  A Child Is Born is a wonderful "indie" take on some classic Christmas songs and a refreshing look at songs unfamiliar to most. If you are a fan of Sojourn's earlier work, you know that they are not your standard three chord Christian pop band. There are elements on A Child Is Born of roughness, rawness, passion, and authenticity generally not found on your standard CCM Christmas album- elements which separate them from most artists in the realm of Christian music. Highly recommended for fans of John Mark McMillan, Daniel Bashta, David Crowder Band, and similar artists.
